Washington, D.C. (November 15, 2017) — The RJC released the following statement from Executive Director Matt Brooks:
Today, the House Committee on Foreign Affairs took a big step to enhance the security of Americans and Israelis. Sponsored by Representatives Doug Lamborn and Lee Zeldin, the Taylor Force Act takes the steps necessary to cut off American taxpayer money from going to the Palestinian Authority while the PA continues to encourage and incentivize the murder and injury of Israelis and Americans. The passage of the Taylor Force Act by the House Foreign Affairs Committee now paves the way for passage of the bill by the full House of Representatives. This bill, spearheaded by Republicans in the House and Senate, is in line with our party's rock solid commitment to our great ally, Israel.
The RJC is very proud to have been the first and strongest supporter of the Taylor Force Act, and we promise to continue our dogged work to pass the bill.
